10 Reasons I’ve Been a Sh*tastic Blogger Lately

I prefer dumbbells to dumbasses _ Cherie Runs This

Golly. I’m being a bad girl with blogging lately, amiright? One, like I said before, now that I work as a Communications Specialist for my day job and I write ALLLLLL day, I’m completely typed-out by the time the weekend hits. And let’s be real, blog posting during the week isn’t happening either. So it’s like 7:45pm on …

2014 Year in Review: On my own & running through this thing called life

2014 Year in Review _ Cherie Runs This

Some wise person once said, “Sometimes you just have to look back at your past and smile about how far you’ve come.” Seems legit. As a lot of you know, my husband and I got separated in the Fall of 2013. So my 2014 was my very first year in about 10 years that I was …

If you click your heels together enough times, it’ll work.

Long time no type! I assure y’all yinz (I guess I better bring back my Pittsburghese!) that I didn’t fall off the Duquesne Incline, into one of the rivers off one of the many bridges, choke on a Primanti Bros. sandwich, or die from a heart attack upon meeting Big Ben (I didn’t find him yet. …

Destination Run: Georgetown & Potomac!

Thank you all so very much for the love you showed me in regards to the letter to my mother. In deciding to spend the anniversary differently this year, I actually had a very healthy day for my body AND mind. So much so, that I have started a new June 8th tradition–“Run Fast for …

A Letter to My Mother

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of my mother’s death. I’m skipping the dedicated fitness/running/weight loss journey post to write a little letter to my Mommy. My heart is heavy today; no other subject will do. If you’ve lost your parent–especially your MOTHER–may you get something out of this, too. ****** June 8, 2012 Dear Mommy, …

Half marathon training begins now!

While training for my first 5K, I had a set schedule for how many miles I needed to run every week. Once the race was over, it was as though I was a complete newbie again wondering how many miles I should run each week, how many miles would keep me fit, how many miles …
